Downloading now. Praying for the card application to be live on 12.4 phones.

The question I have is it similar to iCloud backup and restore or full as in doing from iTunes. The cloud one leaves a lot of stuff out

It's probably far more important in countries with slow Internet or don't have home broadband (China, India). Also reducing Apple's costs in countries with expensive Internet (Australia).
Or also, think about towns and cities that don’t have brick & mortar stores. Gasp! I know that’s difficult to fathom for some. It leaves people relying on terrible, subpar experiences from their carrier stores.

They should release the new iTunes versions at the same time, they always relesae them many hours later.

On the other hand, I wonder long it will be until Apply Pay is permanently disabled in the iPhone 6 due to lack of security updates...
Apple definitely keeps metrics on how many iPhone 6 users are using Apple Pay and will likely not disable it as long as a significant amount of people are using it.

It's also easy for them to release a patch update if there is a glaring security hole. It's been done in the past for otherwise no longer updated devices.

How does the wireless migration work? Is it over WiFi from iPhone A directly to iPhone B? If so, that's a pretty good feature - doing an iCloud backup and restore is quite time consuming.

Hah, this wireless upgrading thing will be great for the person or two who actually upgrades to the 2019 iPhone. Restoring from iCloud is really slow.

I've been on vacation and come back to see fugly hands-on mockups and lackluster specs compared to the 2020 model leaks. Hopefully they get their crap together.
Agreed... can't say I've seen anything at all to make me want to upgrade to the 2019 model....

Also disappointed to here the card isn't launching along side it. Perhaps it does add full support, and later this week they will announce card availability. Or we will have to wait for another update to iOS later this year and the card launch is being delayed.
I haven't even gotten an email from Apple about applying for the card. Maybe they are going to do some sort of stealth role out with it being basically a public beta. A screw up after a few billion in purchases have been made would be more than just embarrassing.
